    Mailers List Peoples Voting Records, Encourage Them to Vote

    It’s been an election season with no shortage of political mailers and flyers but some voters say they’ve also been receiving a new one.

    “It just came so non-descriptly," Dallas voter Adrian DeLeon said.

    DeLeon says the mailer listed part of his voting record and encouraged him to vote. A person’s voting record is public record but DeLeon says he found the flyer concerning.

    "I started to think about it was a concern because I don't feel like my voter information should be public information," DeLeon said.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    Viewers have also told NBC 5 that some of the mailers also list their neighbors voting records and even assign them a grade. The mailers sent to NBC 5 were sent by the ‘Center for Voter Information’ and ‘The Club for Growth.’

    Both organizations told NBC 5 the mailers are effective at getting people to vote and they do not intend to sway voters to vote for one candidate or another, only to vote.
